There are two pairs of cardinals that hang out in my yard. Here, one of them sits atop the bird feeder pole.
 While his lady friend and a robin wait for him to eat.

The downy woodpecker is pretty brave and doesn't give a rat's ass about who is king of the feeder. I think there might be two of them also.
I cut some forsythia and brought it inside to bloom. My only regret is that I won't be here this weekend to see it open!

The sunshine and balmy temps of the past few days have really done a job on my winter blahs. I didn't think I was mellow, but I was noticeably happier yesterday. It might have been the odor of roasting coffee from Chauvin Coffee Company wafting through the air, or the delicious smell coming from the Vietnamese's kitchen next door. 
Either way, I'm happy spring is here and am excited to drive to Chicago tomorrow to see old and old-ish friends. Dan Ryan, here I come!

We haven't had many birds visit us. I am guessing due to my loud dogs. We watched some squirrels jumping from house to house though.

Have fun in Chi-town. Beware of Friday afternoon traffic... booooo!
I need spring more and more each year. It's like a drug.
